WLW Environmental Policy

    

Meeting European Timber Regulations (EUTR)

As members of the Timber Trade Federation we are signatories to the mandatory Reponsible Purchasing Policy. We undertake risk assessments of our timber purchases, this checks our suppliers and ensures that we rule out any risk of illegally produced timber entering into the supply chain.  Low risk timber is where there is a low risk of illegal timber enetering the supply chain due to a strong system of regulatory control in the country of origin or the species is from a low risk source such as a plantation.  ‘All of our timber has been risk-assessed in accordance with the TTF’s RPP commitments.’

The RPP meets the requirements of the European Timber Regulations (EUTR) which came into place on 6 March 2013.

A copy of our certificate can be downloaded by clicking on the certificate below.

Details of the EUTR can be found at:  Regulation (EU) No 995/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 October 2010 FINAL.
